Made it to 30
I'm just so tired this week, I think I'm fighting whatever my daughter had a few days ago...plus my arthritis keeps kicking up with all the weather changes. It took a herculean effort to get myself out of bed and onto the exercise bike this mor... Read more
More Random Thoughts
My daughter is sick, and I feel like I'm fighting it a bit but I have managed not to come down with it yet. I forced myself to work out yesterday despite feeling under the weather, and today I'm feeling better. I really have found that I get s... Read more
I so love SPRING!
What an unbelievably gorgeous weekend we're having...all the more precious because they're threatening rain and thunderstorms tomorrow. Yesterday, I got up and went for a long walk around the park in the sunrise...so beautiful. Then later Kate... Read more

Sometimes, Karma Helps You Out
Yesterday was a very busy and tiring morning, helping shepherd Kate's kindergarten class through the Capitol - and we took a city bus there and back, no less. I finally escaped at nearly 1pm, utterly starving, tired, sore from being on my feet ... Read more
Well, I think it's a combination of maybe pushing a bit too hard on the Zoo Zoom, and my arthritis kicking up with all the weather changes, but I am just so exhausted and sore and achy this week. I didn't work out either Monday or Tuesday - I c... Read more

Zoo Zoom (5k Walk)
Lordy, it was hard to get out of bed today...sore from shoveling bark yesterday, plus my arthritis is kicking up with this lovely weather. But I was determined to do the Zoo Zoom, and I really wanted to beat my personal best of 44:43. So I dra... Read more
Craving versus Hunger
I read on someone's blog recently (sorry, I can't remember who!) that if you think you're hungry, you should ask yourself if you want an apple. If you do, you're really hungry...if you don't, you're just bored or have the munchies or whatever.

When a Real Bummer Turns Out to be the Best Thing
This really has nothing to do with weight, eating, or any of that - but it has everything to do with taking control of my life! I'll warn you, this will probably be long.

Maybe It's About Presentation
First of all, just wanted to say thanks to all those who commented on my "Biggest Loser" blog yesterday. I guess some of it is just reality tv exageration, which goes back to why I hate reality tv and don't watch that show in the first place! ... Read more
Biggest Loser - I Don't Get It
I know a lot of people are huge fans of Biggest Loser. I finally saw it last week - we were visiting my sister-in-law and her partner and they're big fans so they turned it on. I only got through about 10 minutes before I had to leave the room... Read more

Well, we're back from a fun-packed few days in Austin, TX, visiting my sister-in-law and her partner. Had a great time! So nice to get out of town for a bit, and just hang out and have fun rather than going to work and being responsible. :-) ... Read more
